Actually, according to the 1871 census, Alfred James Devonshire was born in Old Ford, Essex....(pretty much in London) and here is his birth registration in Bethnal Green.
March Quarter 1868 Bethnal Green 1c-297.
How did you find his birth date because it seems to be incorrect?....although that happens a lot.
You can send for his birth certificate on line from the General Register Office. Very safe and easy to do. I do it all the time from the US.

1871 census:
Cambridgeshire, Holy Trinity
91 King St.
James Devonshire Head 25 Auctioneers Porter and General Shopkeeper brn Middlesex, Bethnal Green
Anne Wife 23 Middlesex, Spitalfields
Alfred Son 3 Essex, Old Ford
James Son 1 Cambridgeshire, Cambridge
Joseph Davey Boarder 27 Tailor Lincolnshire, Boston
RG10/1589 Folio 91 Page 13

Here is James with his parents
Bethnal Gree, Middlesex
91 Hare St.
James Devonshire Head 39 Silk Weaver Middlesex, Bethnal Green
Sarah Wife 42 Surrey Borough
James Son 15 Shoemaker Mdx, Bethnal Green
Sarah Dau 14 Mdx, Bethnal Green
George Son 10 Mdx, Bethnal Green
RG9/262 Folio 53 Page 8

James Devonshire married Ann Langley Mar Quarter 1867 Bethnal Green 1c-513.

You can search this website for births, marriages and deaths:

I'm unable to find Ann Langley in earlier census - too many to chose from.
The marriage certificate should give her father's name and make it easier to find her.

Here is James in 1851:

Bethnal Green, Middlesex
95 Church St.
James Devonshire Head 28 Hand Loom Weaver Mdx, Bethnal Green
Sarah Wife 31 Surrey, St. Olav
James Son 5 Mdx, Bethnal Green
Sarah Dau 4 Mdx, Bethnal Green
George Son 5m Mdx Bethnal Green
James Devonshire Father 60 Hand Loom Weaver (Silk) Mdx, Bethnal Green.
HO107/1541 Folio 364 Page 17

I am not related to this family. I hope you find this helful.
